  3. Children with major medical or social grounds, supported by certification from a Doctor or a senior practitioner in social work, which indicates grounds why Epsom & Ewell High School would be the most appropriate for the child to attend; (This evidence should set out the particular reasons why this school is the most suitable and the difficulties that would be caused if he/she had to attend another school. The school may feel it appropriate to consult its own medical advisor.)
     
  4. The remaining places will be allocated to children living nearer to the school who will be assigned a place before those living further away.
